We stopped at the Scandinavian Inn on our way back home from a vacation in New England. We were very pleasantly surprised! The room was spacious enough... we had a partial kitchen for a quick fix before bed time. We had a brand new King size bed! the room was very clean... air conditioned...Satellite TV....VI FI was free and working...

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We work very hard to give our customers a clean and comfortable place to lay their heads and maybe even cook a meal or two and it is all worth it when we have wonderful customers such as yourselves! Thank you for sharing your experience with our fellow tripadvisor users! Sincerely, Sheila...

We stayed here with two other couples (versus pitching a tent in a muddy field overnight to attend a friend's large cookout/party) and it was a gem. Easy to find. Clean, comfortable, and having the kitchenette was a nice added extra.

I stayed at there for 3 months while working in the area. I could not say enough good things about how friendly and helpful everyone was. It was clean and comfortable. The kitchenette was essential so that I could cook my own food. I was there during the winter and the snow in parking lot was removed quickly. Highly recommend.

Thank you so much Ruth, for your lovely review. We try hard to make our guest units with kitchenettes comfortable for extended stays such as yours! We are so happy you stayed with us and enjoyed it! Sincerely, Sheila & Kent Axell

I was visiting Waterville, but all the motels in town were full. So I had to cast a wider net. Lucky for me, because it brought me to Axell's Scandinavian Inn. This is actually two separate motels, Axell's and the Fairway Inn, a mile or so west. both are strip motels on big horseshoe drive. I stayed at the Fairway....

Just four miles out of Augusta isa little gem of a place. Nice beds, floor space and a kitchenette for under 100. They even had extra pillows already on the bed. It's pet friendly, too. By Scandanavian, I think they mean IKEA. Love the blackout curtains.

I really hate to write a negative review, but there are some changes that Axells Scandinavian Inn could make that would have made my stay there much more pleasant. I would stay there again and encourage others to also stay there as long as you have read this, and other reviews, and understand just what your are getting. To start...

My boyfriend booked this property as all the hotels closer to Rockport were booked for Lobster Festival. What a pleasant surprise. After a 10 hour drive, it was welcoming to be greeted warmly by the reception lady which we later learned was the owner. The property was well maintained. The room was clean and had a microwave and fridge. They...

Whenever I am in the Augusta area, this is my first choice to stay.I will admit, I was nervous about staying at a roadside motel like this. However, after seeing my room, I was hooked! I usually stay over at the Fairway Motor Lodge (there other motel that's just down the road). Unlike other motels, each room is unique. If...

My daughter and I came to stay for 9 nights in Maine. First of all the photos of this inn are misleading. No pool, no nice rooms. When we first got here they didn't even have a room for us and I just wanted my money back and would stay someplace else. Well they said they'd fix it by the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just west of the Augusta line, we are two, small, locally owned and operated motels with all the amenities of a large one. Innkeepers, Sheila and Kent, have worked tirelessly to make each and every guestroom unique, comfortable and full of amenities that they themselves would like to find while they are traveling. You won't find "cookie cutter" guestrooms here, all guestrooms are decorated differently, so if you don't like the style of one, we are sure we'll find one you love! When you visit, you must take a dip in the new inground, salt water, heated pool, located at the Fairway, just one mile from the Scandinavian Inn ! It is fabulous! ... more   less
